The Orange County Sheriff’s Office makes two arrests for marijuana possession in the Locust Grove area.
On Wednesday, March 19th, a sheriff’s deputy was attempting to service a warrant at a home in the 500 block of Mt. Pleasant Drive, but no one was answering the door.
According to officials, the deputy smelled marijuana coming from the house.
The deputy detained 27-year-old Milton Brown Jr. when he walked out from a side door of the home.
Investigators with the sheriff's office were called in and a search warrant was obtained and executed on the property. Three other people were detained at the house.
Brown Jr. is charged with possession with the intent to distribute marijuana, obstruction of justice, and possession of a firearm as a convicted felon.
Twenty-seven-year-old Roberto Graham Jr., who authorities say was also inside the home at the time, was charged with possession of marijuana.
